    Drowning in the River of Time

    from childhood to adulthood and eventually reaching to matured, we can experience the immediate past and even despite we cannot go back to our former state, neither rectify the mistakes we made, but, the residue of the past effect lies on us in different form, a new quality or character. a negative thought in a passage of time perpetually disappear and is an end of that thought in a given time. negation brings a new design of thought with a new quality, having no resemblance with the past process of thought. utterly being guided by the new available circumstances. entire in new format. if we cannot see, observe or touch the minute form of matter, such as atom, will we ignore its presence? equally, thought being largely depending on external conditions, how can we immediately gauge its merits and impact on us? we are the inevitable product of our thought process, which is being largely controlled by time and space! however, intriguing post sir @Ali Anani! enjoyed read as always as it enriches us. thank you very much for sharing the post sir.

    Time is finite from the perspective of an individual. We tend to live our time on Earth in only two directions. We move forward in our youth, but we back in to our old age. I think the point when our gaze reverses is different for each person. It isn’t until we turn around to watch our youth recede, do we start to learn the consequences of it. The older we are at this event, the less time for corrective action is afforded us. Few live in the present. I think the vast majority is either waiting for something good to occur or is searching their history to see if they missed it. In my humble opinion.

    #14 Thank you @Ali Anani for inviting me to participate in discussing @Steve Chapman's insightful comment on time and expanding on your car metaphor. I know this sounds cliche but, it's complicated. Steve writes, "If we are here now, we know we have made it to the present." But I "see" this as the following process in time: in order to know I made it, the knowledge can only come from what I projected from the past, how else can I know I made it here? The other half of Steve's quote, "If we can't picture ourselves in the future, there is a good chance, we may not be there", describes the same process: if we can picture ourselves in the future, we can only be there, in the present, knowing we are in the present as a result of having pictured ourselves, projected from the past. The reason it's all the same, from my perspective, is that time is not linear, we don't move through time, we move in time, we place ourselves in time. The car metaphor is a good one because we are in the car and have access to different perspectives of how we are moving in time. When we are looking forward, yes, we are seeing "ahead" but we are experiencing "ahead" as passing moments in the present. Each side mirror reflects what is passing beside us from different "angles" and the rear view mirror has a "blind spot". In other words, we can perceive time, but not in an integrated and whole way. Our sensory system is not set up for us to take it all in. We are designed to "remember", or not, the past, "be" in the present, and "imagine", or project, ourselves into the future.

    #16 Great thoughts @Harvey Lloyd. You wrote "Time is the water we drift upon, but we are separate from the water".This thought invites for many questions.in what patterns does water flow? How do we adapt to it? How is the flow affected by the environment and us who drift upon it? I love comments that make me think such as this one.

    The only way we connect with time is through others. Time is merely a variable within our existence. We live and we die. Where on the timeline we do this is not the reality. What we do inbetween is what makes the difference.

    Your buzz shines light on the variables of the past and future. We can make the difference by what we learn being passed on to someone else's future. These variables can bring us to wisdom and grant others our experience or, and it's a big OR, we can allow both variables to consume us as your hourglass illustrates.

    Time is the water we drift upon, but we are separate from the water.

    #14 My dear Ali Anani this much I can say about "If we can't picture ourselves in the future, there is a good chance, we may not be there" [quote from Steve Chapman] is this. I have been to one too many funerals of young people aged between 17 and 25, and that too many numbers a total of 4. I also have purchased albums from great songwriters who voiced and saw the future, but he met unusual ends - and John Lennon's life was taken by a deranged fan who wanted his "personal brand' and thought by killing him he would inherit it - such is the sickness of image in this world. Yet John Lennon left a song of the future he had for his beautiful boy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A56ZuKgPYg - so what can I say other than, in these matters of mind, heart and will, one size does not fit all. Who I am to see any future than leave a message that I might read once I get there. This is the biggest difference between having a learning journey and a successful personal brand. It comes down to what is image and what is real. This video is a celebration of the everyday second we have and one day all we have are the images.

    Much time has passed since I have read anything on LinkedIn or beBee Ali Anani. I was drowning in the words and thoughts of so many great writers, teachers, and mentors. Your simple, but thought provoking analogy of driving a car brought a few things to mind. The past, the present, and the future. The ability to travel through time safely is related to the ability to see all around you. If we drive a car at night, with the headlights out, being able to see beside us, and behind us, will not save us, from what could be danger ahead . If we are here now, we know we have made it to the present. If we can't picture ourselves in the future, there is a good chance, we may not be there. Headlights on, will not improve your sight ahead if you are looking in the mirror. Looking ahead will. The road ahead will only improve, if you truly know where you came from, where you are, and where you want to go.Thank you for this post.

    #8 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- This is an incredibly thoughtful comment. You really made my day and filed it with joy. I love the idea of instant gratification and as we grow up we still keep this habit with us. As you said We need to tolerance to waiting. This is a deep thought. You bring to my mind a novel thought. It is as kids we have small variation, but as we grow up this variation widens. So, the older we get, the more tolerance to waiting we should exercise. If I don't know if you would agree. In any case you opened my mind to new issues of human behavior. Bravo dear Sara.

    I can never shake off the feeling of seeing my name mentioned, in any connection, on one of your buzzes @Ali Anani. Thank you! You have woven so much in this buzz about the fabric of time. I can only contribute a very small "gut reaction"; the concept of instant gratification. The complexity of time, our relationship to time and the space in which we experience time is developmentally, psychologically very simple. The simplicity is related to survival. When the baby is hungry, it needs to eat, right away! Its need to be gratified has to be instantaneous. As we mature, we develop our ability to delay our gratifications, but unfortunately, emotionally, we may be "stuck". This need to experience instant gratification is connected to many of our addiction behaviours, our choices and decisions in our adult life. Instant gratification also influences how we experience errors or failures. Instead of experiencing the "lessons learnt" from these errors or failures, we react with the frustration of not being gratified with our intended outcome. We need to be mature about time when we relate to our business needs. We need to exercise our tolerance to waiting.

    Every day I send out videos and I absolutely love doing it because of the transformations we’re seeing from REAL people getting REAL results in their lives.

    But today’s video is going to be a little different.

    This is really a sort of a deep dive into what every ‘successful’ person has in common.

    I’ll give you a hint…

    If they’re ever ‘STUCK’... they have a way to get “UNSTUCK” real quick.

    This video s about how you can get unstuck by using a weird daily routine.

    🐝Firstly Lance, I congratulate your parents for bestowing you with such a great given name.😆

    🐝Secondly, your Almost Buzz reminds me of the Introduction Chapter of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

    He tells the story of how an uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the “gold fever” in the goldrush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH. He found a gold vein in Colorardo, enticed some investors for the required machinery and inspired Darby to join him at the mine.

    To quote the “ALMOST” from the book…

    “The uncle and Darby went back to work the mine. The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits.

    Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of Darby and Uncle! Then
    something happened! The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had come
    to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again—all to no avail.
    Finally, they decided to QUIT.

    🛇ALMOST 🚫

    They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars,
    and took the train back home. Some “junk” men are dumb, but not this one! He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed, because the owners were not familiar with “fault lines.” His calculations showed that the vein would be found JUST THREE FEET FROM WHERE THE DARBYS HAD STOPPED DRILLING! That is exactly where it was found!

    The “Junk” man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine,
    because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.”

    Very cool (although unfortunate) story. The thing about H.M. remembering things unconsciously - and answering faster because of it - somehow reminded me of that scene from The Matrix when Neo enters the Source. When he asks the Architect "Why am I here?" , he gets a vague answer, and says: "You haven't answered my question". The Architect then observes: "Interesting. That was faster than the others." :-)

    @Aurorasa Sima I've always taken my memory for granted. After reading your post last night, I woke up and I can remember yesterday, and my past. The brain is quite small be to able to hold all these things I've lived, yet I'm able to recall many things vividly. These are some experiences which can trigger a flashback, like with my accident, and I'm never happy with those. It is good though that I can recall, I'm guessing because that poor man could not. Its quite interesting how medicine and science has evolved, especially when they botch a surgery. To learn sometimes we have to see things go wrong. Quite interesting. This is definitely something to thing about. #16

    @Aurorasa Sima.Thank you for sharing an insightful story.The brand recall studies often reveal two dimensions of memory or awareness; prompted and unprompted.When the researcher ask the interviewee ;What comes into your mind when I say(brand) without showing cards with names this is considered spontaneous or unprompted awareness.Memory is always associated with stimuli in two ways ,the depth of the memory and the breadth of memory .Intensive individual interviews is concerned with the depth,while group discussions provide the width.The depth is not implying probing the unconscious mind in the question what comes into ..? but is always concerned with the answers of the question Why?.Because the memory of elders is always deceptive and colored with current events,to obtain a broad understanding of a problem group discussions may be more appropriate .This doesn't mean we should not use intensive interviews,as both of them can be used consequently to reveal details or the attitudes which the interviewees themselves may be unaware of or are not able to articulate.

    #10 Thank you @Aurorasa Sima for your kind response. I am working on clarifying and elaborating and look forward to sharing my thoughts with you. I found this reference in wikipedia. I don't know how accurate the term amnesia is, but still relevant to memory, but here is that story and the name of the doctor. "Claparède performed an influential experiment demonstrating how the trauma of a painful event could be retained even if short term memory was lost.[5] His experiment involved a woman who suffered from a form of amnesia. She had all of her old memories as well as her basic reasoning skills, but the recent past was not remembered. Claparède had greeted her every day, each time she could not remember his face at all. Then during one session of the experiment, Claparède hid a pin in his hand and reached to shake the woman's hand, pricking her. The next day, sure enough, she did not remember him. But when Claparède went to shake her hand, he found that she hesitated, recognizing a threat when her memory had been severely damaged."

    THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Even over 1600 years ago the concept of derived wealth/sucesss for many was centered on possessions, however Epicurus argued that we refocus on what really matters, purpose. Doing what we enjoy, the moments, the journey is truly our wealth. Many possess a lot but have no joy, so enjoy what you have and look at the glass as FULL. Many don't even have a glass to fill.

    Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

    #9 What is the language we use to describe this developing awareness? Perhaps it is the study of cognition...the recognition that there is something more to our existence other than polluting planets;-) We are members of a soul group, connected by this common thread of awareness that what we do to others, we do to ourselves...and vise versa. Applying that knowledge in our interactions with others would certainly serve ourselves and our environment for the better don't you think? Nobody would dump their trash in their own backyard...(metaphorically speaking)...So why do that to others? Our IMAGINATION is the vessel to this developing awareness...our channel so to speak. Tuning into your station brings with it a greater clarity to an otherwise static existence...Yours dreams will show you the way;-) Thank you Sara, for inspiring me to dig a little deeper;-)

It's interesting that the very "thought" alone can create an enormous amount of fear in one's being...We are like children reluctant to go to a new school because we are afraid we will not know anyone. But if we consider the fact that we are multi-dimensional beings, therefore being of divine intelligence, we already know everyone! It is our human personality that has been erased of it's memory. Our human SENSORY SYSTEM is how we process knowledge within the physical world...But what is our state of consciousness before birth? Furthermore, where are we before we enter the womb?

    Part Four: LANGUAGE AND METAPHORS: Our awareness of self and the meanings we attribute to our experiences are all expressed and communicated through language. Our first language is non-verbal. It is our "mother tongue" and so we carry it with us as we develop our verbal language. Michael Michalko (2012) states that creativity requires looking at the world in a different way. When we think metaphorically we utilize our ability to imagine. Our imagination is given expression through the non-verbal and verbal language of metaphors. The metaphor is "out there" to make it possible for us to sense and experience things in an unexpected way.

    Thanks so much for this inspiring and motivational buzz, Lance. I also like these sayings:

    3) It's always darkest before the dawn.
    4) You're closer than you think.
    Actually, I'm reminded of your Gold Rush blog post with the image of the miners. That's because some miners who worked for a long time ended up quitting when they were so close to striking the gold vein. If they only would have persisted a little bit longer, they could have hit the jackpot.

    The alternative is to be sent to Robben Island. One way or another, the world finds a way of making us.

    Last year @Graham🐝 Edwards provided a profound view of broken china and a different way at looking at brokenness http://makezine.com/2015/08/17/kintsugi-japanese-art-recognizing-beauty-broken-things/ This introduction to "kintsugi" altered my perspective.

    The long shot is even if that mug is highly valued, if it required kintsugi, the original meaning of it is not lost, but the new lines it supports makes the idea of challenge beautiful. Beauty in the brokeness rather than the struggle not to break, if we have this art.

    #1 Interesting that I saw the word DIGNA-TENTITY before I saw the word DIGI-IDENTITY. It is only on my second look that I saw portmanteau of digital identity and not dignity-identity. This is the same mind that is the providence of great marketers.

    It is not the trend of personal branding that bothers me, it was being confronted by Tom Peters who launched BRAND-YOU at the end of the last century portraying the human being to sell themselves like Proctor & Gamble sell a box of soap.

    When people read the original roll out of "The Brand Called You", it was a hit, but I did not focus on how we can Proctor & Gamble our own being or Unilever our soul, I just stared in amazement that this concept could be launched with an image of soap powder.


    Here were on the eve of the 21s Century and someone was reducing the human being to a box of "Tide". Now add to that the feeling of being a product in a digital container, my reaction then was not the reaction of my peers. Immediately my gut reaction was to launch into posts such as Pathway to Authenticity. Yet that gut reaction was just as limited as "The Brand Called You".

    That is how Mark Zorro came to be - initially a blog in 2003 where my rejection of "The Brand Called You" expressed itself as a blog of one-liners i.e. that we were becoming a soundbite society. In 2003 I created this blog at blogspot, founded by Evan Williams. In 2006 Evan Williams launched a co-founded a company that promoted guess what? One Liners - his group first called it TWTTR

    "...our capacity to be this thing we call "being human" This is not a facility that nature gave us, it is a potential we have but we need to nurture it. That nurturing did not begin with us, it begins with our guardians or parents and the nature of our society. "

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit - I have been slow-cooker-marinading on your series of thoughts on the wrong-side-of-the-bedness of succumbing to the trend of personal branding. I alternate between unease and 'oh, just an inapt metaphor' to extreme unease and then back to simmering confusion.

    Are avatar, persona, profile thumbnail any better? What do we call this little slice of Deb that is portrayed in 2-D typing that is interpreted differently in each brain that chooses to read my arrangement of words?


    Here is my basic problem. A corporate brand is meant to coalesce products and/or services so that hundreds of employees can talk to thousands of customers in a shorthand without misrepresenting a core component in the fluidity of language.
